1st reaction -- Wayyyyyyyy Cool! The site allows you to enter up to 25 trusted websites and create a one-search tool for just those sites.
2nd reaction – think of the usefulness of this for libraries!!! With tools like this, librarians can create customized search engines for just the authority sites they like!! I can see a search engine for trusted business sites, homework resources, health sites etc. The applications are numerous and best yet – it trumps Google!
In playing around, I 'rolled' my own search tool for several sites that are part of PLCMC’s library’s family of websites (we have 15 separate domains in all). Take a look and try it out yourself here (or use the little search box below)
Hint: try a broad search term like "history" or "homework" to see results on the first page from multiple sites.
OK. You've tried it. Now share with me your 1st & 2nd reaction thoughts... What do you think?
UPDATE: Check out these search rolls created by Rollyo users:
PS: And don't forget to spend some time exploring and playing with some of the winners (and honorable mentions too!) There's a lot of neat stuff floating around out there... and a lot of it can be extremely useful too!
